    More good news about chocolate (at least to me).

    Thanks so much for the article--I actually love reading the articles and getting the facts on things so I enjoyed reading this.

    Chocolate for me is a migraine producer, but Dark Chocolate gives me the worst migraine--the type of migraine where you just want to die--within about a half hour. For some it is good for stress and for me it just tortures the heck out of me and now I look at it in fear.

    Milk Chocolate used to be a real treat for me and since about 2006, I just can't eat it without getting a migraine. But sometimes food is prepared with dark chocolate hidden in the center or flakes of dark chocolate and I have to be really careful, because it will get me really bad--I usually have to ask to make sure. I wish I understood why dark chocolate hits me so severe.
